Jamestown, the 19th century Guilford County Quaker settlement founded by James Mendenhall, is the home to a group of historically significant buildings that have been put at risk by the North Carolina Highway Commission's plans to widen Highway 29A-70A. The Office of Archives and History, the State Professional Review Committee and the High Point Historical Museum have all participated in having the area declared a Historic District, an act that will require any federally funded local projects to undergo a special review process and that will hopefully encourage planners to seek an alternate route for the highway.
